Dear Friends and Loved Ones of Kendra,
Thank you so much for making your gift in honor and in memory of Kendra. Her legacy is alive and well here at UCLA, and through this scholarship, it will be for years to come. Your donations will provide many opportunities to an up-and-coming LatinX actor here at the UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television. We can't wait to share more updates with you about the Kendra Perez Memorial scholarship later this year, and after our campaign ends on January 1st.
Giving back to the community and spreading awareness about important causes was important to Kendra, and it's important to us, too.
You've already done so much just by contributing to our efforts, but we need your help once again today. For the last 6 years, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving has been known as #GivingTuesday - a day which celebrates giving back and generosity following a week often filled with digital shopping sprees.
An anonymous donor has come forward with a challenge to the MFA Cohort #3 crowdfunding team. Starting this morning and until midnight on December 9th, this anonymous donor will be matching all donations to the Kendra Perez Memorial Scholarship campaign on a dollar-to-dollar basis, up to $7,500. In essence, this means that all donations made to Kendra's Memorial campaign will have double the impact, because donations will go twice as far.
We need your help in sharing our campaign page, video, and your own reasons for supporting the Kendra Perez Memorial Scholarship. With your voices, we will be able to reach even more people who knew Kendra, and who might want to donate to the scholarship.
All donations, whether it's a lot or a little, will be matched by the anonymous donor, up to $7,500, and will ensure that this scholarship remains funded for years to come.
Thank you for being our partner in honoring Kendra's legacy. We'll be back in touch again soon.
